Olympic Committee Requests Dead Drummer to Play in Opening Ceremonies.
There is no question that the opening ceremony for the 2008 Beijing Olympics was a site to behold. Many called it one of the most spectacular displays ever created in the history of civilization. The only question that arises now is how on earth can the 2012 London Games top it. Apparently by raising former British Rock stars from the dead.
The organizers of the London opening ceremony have reached out to British Rock band, The Who, and asked the band’s manager, Bill Curbishley, if former drummer Keith Moon would be willing to reunite with the band for the event. Sounds like a brilliant idea seeing as The Who is one of the most recognizable bands to come out of the British Invasion, except the fact that Moon died 34 years ago.
Curbishley’s response was good hearted, ” I emailed back saying Keith now resides in Golders Green crematorium, having lived up to The Who’s anthemic line ‘I hope I die before I get old,'” he said. “If they have a round table, some glasses and candles, we might contact him.” The two surviving member of the original band have agreed to participate in the event.
This request has peaked my interest. The Who is great and all but why not strive for a Beatles Reunion. Why not resurrect former Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury.
Why even bother reuniting a single band… They should create a supergroup featuring all british rock stars who left us all a little too early.
Let me hear it Buzzhead’s! Who would YOU bring back from the dead to perform at the Olympics? Comment me back and let me know who YOU would like to see.
